Joseph Marie Jacquard, showing his loom to Lazare Carnot, Lyon, France, 1801 (1901)

Joseph Marie Jacquard, showing his loom to Lazare Carnot, Lyon, France, 1801 (1901). French silk-weaver and inventor Jacquard (1752-1834) invented a loom which used a punched card system to weave complicated patterns in textiles. The punched cards on which the pattern is encoded are at the right of the loom. Carnot (1753-1823) was a member of the National Convention and the architect of France's victory in the Revolutionary Wars. Napoleon appointed him Minister for War in 1800. From Le Petit Journal. [Paris, 6 January 1901]
